(CNN) — Five people died and 13 others were injured Saturday morning in an apartment fire in downtown Las Vegas, Las Vegas Fire and Rescue said in a Facebook post.
Firefighters were called to the Alpine Motel Apartments near North Las Vegas Boulevard around 4:13 a.m., the post said.
They found heavy smoke and people “hanging out” windows of the three-story structure. Some jumped and were injured, the post said.
“A second alarm was requested along with 10 additional EMS transport units,” and the first-floor fire was out in five minutes, the post said.
Twenty-three people were displaced, the post said. The cause of the fire is under investigation, and there were no injuries to first responders.
